Pours a copper brown with light tan head. Aroma is bready yeast and some earthy notes. Flavor is the same with caramel, bready malt and a earthy taste coming through. Clean clear, and nice looking, goood tasting beer. Easy drinker. Recommended/

On tap at Maxwell’s. Orange colored pour with a white head. Malty, sweet caramel nose; taste is similar but a bit more refreshing. Pretty good beer, and I am not really a fan of dunkels. Would drink this again, not too bad.

Leighton (21813) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear, bright amber-gold with a creamy, tan cap. Tasty, well rounded. Some toffee and toasted bread on the nose. Light-medium sweet with bready malts, faint leafy bitterness and toasty caramel. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Moderate sweetness at the end with dry and toasted caramel, light doughy bread. Tasty though fairly elementary.

On tap at Olde Mecklenburg. Pours a brown color with white head. Bread, malty, nutty, slight roasty flavors. Pretty nice dunkel.

Pours a sharp and clean reddish burnt brown with two fingers of tight sandy tan head. Nose is earthy with cracker-ish malt notes and a light grassy sweetness. Flavor shows bready malt with a light herbal/earthy balance and slightly metallic bitterness. Medium light body and pretty refreshing.

hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle... Clear, deep copper lager with a small creamy off-white head. Decent retention. I had a hard time pulling any aromatics from my glass for a good while, but I was finally able to hunt down some malty and toasty notes accompanied by buttery toffee. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a mish-mash of buttery toffee, caramel, minerals and earthy hops. It’s balanced quite well. Short, lightly bitter finish.

3.1
GTAEgeek (2295) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark brown color with a medium, bubbly, tan head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Light coffee aroma, with some brown sugar, cinnamon, and some rye. Very sweet and malty, with some very light earthy, hop bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy body, chalky, and sticky. Overall, this is a nicely balanced, simple, but tasty beer.
